    Seems to have made them a deeper shade of black. Took a while to get all the detail pieces on the bed graphics without rubbing the VRP all over the place. 40ADCFC8-C5B4-4DF4-9C21-4732A5106B3E.jpeg F1B0B161-36E1-4A97-BD73-7A3555453719.jpeg

    Where's the picture of the stuff you used. Looks good though.

    Been using VRP for years and it doesn't disappoint but haven't tried it on the graphics - thanks for the tip!

    Chemical Guys VRP. Google or their website will bring it right up. I took some time last night and applied it to all the exterior plastic plus the graphics and it turned out well. I normally just use it on tires and interior trim.

    TBH, I was apprehensive at first, but I don’t see any way to have ill effects. And I *think* the graphics are indeed made of vinyl, right? And the V in VRP does stand for vinyl...

    Yeah couldn't agree more - I just never thought of it.
    I use it on the rear bumper and bed rails along with my mudflaps and hood scoop/side vents and it works perfectly for those but never thought to use on the graphics. Will do this next time I give her a wash. I love my VRP because it makes plastics look new without the greasy or overshined look. Makes sense to use on the graphics.

    Thanks for the life hack.

    Thank you for the tip. I’d never heard of VRP.

    I’ve always used 303 protectant on vinyl graphics to good effect. Not shiny.

    Unrelated to VRP, I previously used 303 Leather Cleaner and recently switched to Chemical Guys Leather Cleaner + Leather Conditioner. Wow, I had no idea what I was missing. Can't believe how nice the Leather Conditioner makes my seats look, feel, and smell. The scent is just right for that subtle new car leather smell.

    Damn, this place is getting expensive. Had to order some Chemical Guys stuff now. ;)
